To all naysayers:
DIDN'T YOUR MOM TELL YOU THAT IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL?
Truly, I think Envy appreciates constructive criticism, but that's not what she got....just be nice!

Personally, I think they are GREEN with envy

Mail Slot Delete?

How did you fill in the mail slot? It is seamless. If this was traditional body work, they really did a nice job of not leaving any traces.

How did you do it?

Thanks for the post.

Wow congrats on the beautiful car and COTW.

And most importantly, thank you for being one of the earlier ones to step it up and put cutouts on your v6. I have searched and searched but have not found too many who have done so. This is probably the one mod I want to do more than any. If you could pm some information or reply with some information I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again and fill me in on everything. How you like them, do they leak, etc!

THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE.

Envy, keep up the good fight. It's interesting that all of the petty hate comes from your own neck of the woods. Sounds like good old fashioned jealousy to me. Love your ride, green is way cool. If you plan on doing any FI mods, check out Gretchen's twin turbo SG build thread http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=112151

He's in LR, AR. It's nice. I got a chance to see it last Sat.

Looking forward to the video clip of the muffler delete.

Sorry, didn't realize that it was an LT at first. No matter, smokin hot car. It is all about what is right for you. You have done an excellent job on it. Very nice work! You should be proud of what you've accomplished with it.

Enjoy!

Eibach Pro Kit

Here's a picture when she was still stock...except for the chrome 20"s.



And now a couple after the Eibach Pro Kit was installed. The kit includes front and rear sway bars and the lowering springs which lower the car one inch. The first one is without the GFX and the second two are with the GFX.







This was easily one of my favorite mods especially for the price. It gives the car a better stance and the increased handling ability is amazing. I will admit that the ride is not quite as smooth...but I don't care...it's well worth the trade off.

And here's some of the sway bars installed.

Beautiful car! You have a well thought out plan. Too many just buy a bunch of parts and hope for the best. You got the best because you are not only pretty buy pretty darn intelligent. Enjoy!

HEY GIRLIE! Cool to see you over here in C5land.

I for one love your car! And if you get a second could you pm me the price specs about your side scoops? Those and a spoiler (if I could pick one) are on my list... After I upgrade my brakes, and do my headers/tune. lol. And to me, if your car has the lights, the rims, and such... Then its an RS, tell everyone complaining to shove it. (Which you have done a very nice job of doing, I cracked up everytime)

Like some have said about, haters are going to hate. They are just jealous to see a girl with a better looking car than theirs, I get it alot too. Just brush them off.

Here's some pictures of Envy while she was in the shop getting her new hood, deck lid and spoiler painted. I always thought that she looked kind of sad. :(







And one after the third paint attempt on the hood.
We did have a few paint match issues to work through. Fourth time was the charm in this case.

Well done..... Your combo of mods, makes your SGM unique and stand out in the crowd............... I love it ........

My 2nd favorite color of the C5, is the SGM...........


I suggest some custom carbon fiber parts from The Carbon Fiber Specialists to finish off the interior and AAC Halos for the exterior

I promised to answer all the questions about the front splitter to my GFX. So I'll give it a try now.

My ground effects are the GM GFX. They only come as a set so I do have the front splitter. I just don't want to put it on my car. I really like the way Envy looks without the front splitter. I think the new 5th Gen is all about the face, or front view if you will, and the look of the splitter does nothing to enhance those lines IMO. I purchased my GFX from my dealership...but that was the expensive way. I found the best deal by far on any Camaro part at one of our our own site sponsors GMPartsDirect...here's the link.

http://gmpartsdirect.com/

Originally, I was going for an old school muscle car look, and we didn't have ground effects back in the 70's and 80's. Once the car was lowered, the stance looked so good that the GFX weren't needed. Honestly, the only part of the GM GFX I even liked was the rear diffuser. I really, really loved the squared off surrounds for the exhaust on the GM diffuser. But I wasn't convinced that I needed to spend $2000 + paint on GFX, so my dealer suggested going aftermarket. We ordered a set of "cheaper" GFX and what we got was a cheap, crappy set of GFX that were very flimsy and literally stuck on. Needless to say...we sent them back and decided to give the GM ones a try...and I have never regretted that decision. In this case...you definitely get what you paid for. In the end, the GFX really set off the Xenon side scoops and accentuated that low to the ground look, so I kept them.

I really like the way the car looks without the front splitter though. It keeps the original look that GM intended for the V6 to have. GM added a splitter to the SS and I think adding one on the V6 looks like imitation. And contrary to what the locals think...I am all about having a one-of-a-kind...not imitating others.

Plus the front splitter is the only piece that requires that holes be drilled in my beautiful car. Try doing that with my knowledge...lol.
And if I was going to drill holes in my car...I might as well add a front license plate.

Here's a picture of Envy at the shop getting her GFX installed.

Thank you so much...the scoops are one of my favorite things!

Those are the Xenon quarter panel side scoops available from one of our other site sponsors ShowStopperAccessories.com. Here's the link...they've gone up since I bought them last year...but still a good deal.

http://showstopperaccessories.com/pr...e-Scoops-.html

Depending on the the paint shop...it will probably cost anywhere from $200-$500 for the prep, paint and installation of the scoops. The scoops did need additional adhesive beyond the 3M tape supplied but my dealership took care of that for me. They are stuck down so well now that a tiny leaf can't even get stuck in one.

Here's a few pics with more close-ups of the scoops.









and still one of my favorite pictures...

Once again...I am overwhelmed with all the nice comments and compliments...thanks everyone!

I believe Envy is the third V6 to be COTW...an accomplishment I am very proud of.
